"So much orange peel to the dark berries and ripe fruit. But never over the top. Medium-to full-bodied with medium-round tannins and a savory finish. Just a hint of chocolate and walnut. Nice subtlety to the depth. Drink or hold."

"Following the path of the 2018, the 2019 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec is phenomenal. It shows freshness, elegance, balance, complexity and nuance as well. It's seamless, precise and ethereal with lots of inner energy and light. As the 2018 was, it's expressive and floral, varietal and with the full chalky texture that is a distinct characteristic of Altamira. It's tasty, the tannins are polished and there is an almost salty sensation in the finish."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Located in the Southern part of the Uco Valley, Altamira has long been recognized as a premium location for grape growing. The sandy, alluvial soils with the caticata stones differentiate it from its neighbors. The Catena family has had vines there since the 1950s. Located above 1000 meters in the Alluvial fan of the Tunuyan River, the elevation and the sandy soils bring an elegance to all the varietals of the region especially Malbec.
